a deep depression he thought a lot about how girls in india are often harassed and disadvantaged he had a monument put up in his daughter's honor but it wasn't enough he wanted to do something more. i planted the tree as a memorial and as a way of coping with my grief but i soon realized that one tree wasn't enough. why we started this program $111.00 trees for each girl it has to be as many as. this area had become a total waste land and now you can see the result. but you know the region around people on tree is full of marble quarries this is how it used to look 13 years and 350000 new trees later a dense forest now surrounds the village it's a blessing for the microclimate and the hot summer and the village of 5000 is now more prosperous because the forest is cultivated local see the broom is directly

5:53 pm
a great mix of the order of the little guy getting it on men and they thought. when it all gets to be too much for him he withdraws to the forest this is the tree that started it all the tree that he planted for his deceased daughter. she on sunder says that at least her death had a positive effect its daughter would certainly have been proud of her father. this week our worldwide search for tasty snacks takes us to iceland. the icelandic landscapes are spectacular and you don't even have to leave town to enjoy them even from the center of reykjavik there are breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains because it tends to be pretty cold for most of the year but start a coffee there's a small restaurant where you can warm up and enjoy the local speciality soup in

5:55 pm
just go to. so i. get it by the fact that. the super sensitive 6 costs around 14 euro fairly cheap by icelandic standards and one reason why this little cafe is so popular with both locals and visitors the city serves about 600 soups a day in winter the weekends get very busy you can see the faces of people who are you need for this leg they do it and that makes me happy that's you know one of the reasons i'm stupid. claim going to cool.
